Spring Registration for Family Campout is Now Open

January 3, 2018

PHOENIX – Join the fun at Arizona State Parks and Trails award-winning Family Campout Program this spring! The program gives kids a break from electronics and introduces them to new outdoor adventures for one-weekend at a state park. 

The program is ideal for those new to camping but all are welcome to share in this weekend experience. An activity-filled weekend could include fishing, archery, mountain biking, hiking, or birding, depending on the date and park chosen. Trained camp coordinators will assist by teaching campers how to set up a tent, prepare food outside, build a fire and work on a service project. The program fee is $90 for a family of up to four people. Additional family members are $5 each for up to six people. Sorry, children five and younger and pets cannot attend this program.
